Anyone else hearing rumors that Eichel might be staying at BU?

I always think you should air on the side of caution when it comes to college players.  Let them have their time in college to develop well.  Buffalo will have a great talent, even if he waits for another 2 or 3 years before making the jump.

I don't mind the dirty play. I wish someone on our team had the same fire Kovalchuk had when he was here and was pissed off. Angry Russian bear Kovalchuk >>>>>>>>>>

What? lol  You don't mind the dirty play.  Dirty plays say a lot about the player and even more about the fans if they don't hold their players accountable.  This isn't meant to be inflammatory and I didn't watch the play in question.  In addition, it wasn't often but there were times that even Kovalchuk looked lackluster.

In Topic: Merits of trading the first round pick

I don't like to immediately hop on Triumphs bandwagon, but I think if we can trade down and get another 2nd along with a later 1st rounder.  I tend to believe the more picks you have the better.  You have no way as just fans to really gauge whether or not these players will give you what you want years down the road.  Yeah, first-round picks can become core players, but with our history, I'd take two 2nd rounders over a 1st anyday.

Let's flash back nearly 2 years ago to the eve of the 2013 NHL Draft. Brodeur and Hedberg were our goalies, we still had Kovalchuk and Clarkson. At that time, we had no plan for the future between the pipes, which of course got solved the next day. It seems like Kinkaid at the very least is a good backup.

Defensively, we were rolling out a combination of Greene, Volchenkov, Tallinder, Fayne , Sal, Harrold and an underachieving Larsson. Larsson's protections look much better at this point, Severson looks great, Merrill has the stuff to be a top 4dman.

So that's two out the positions where the future outlook is much brighter.

Unfortunately, Kovy left, Clarkson is gone, Josefson/Tedenby haven't met expectations. Boucher has been up and down in the minors, Matteau, Quenneville have been disappointments. FA has been a mixed bag at best and more realistically, a major bummer.

My point, let's see what they can do while devoting most of their assets to the offense. Lord knows, this team has been unwatchable for awhile.

Idk about all this. I wouldn't say that the young player such as Matteau or Boucher, disappointing so far? Yeah but there's still hope. Queneville hasn't even seen time in the pros yet.
